Manhattan

A Manhattan is a classic cocktail made from a blend of whiskey, sweet vermouth and a dash of Angostura bitters. Traditionally, rye whiskey is used to make the cocktail, but other whiskeys, such as bourbon or Canadian whiskey, can be used. The drink is garnished with a maraschino cherry or a lemon twist. The Manhattan is believed to have originated in the late 1800s at the Manhattan Club in New York City. The Manhattan is a popular choice for many occasions and is often served in a martini glass. It is also popular in upscale bars and restaurants. The drink is often seen as a symbol of sophistication and style. Despite its popularity, the Manhattan is surprisingly easy to make.
